Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of pine hops, bourbon, brown sugar and some tea. The flavor is a bit different. I get a lot of roasted malt and chocolate notes, as well as some oak, bourbon, pine and alcohol. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

22 oz. bottle from alexsdad06- thanks again, Brad! 2012 release, bottle 9/192. Pours a cloudy amber color with a beige head. Bourbon barrel notes lead the way here, with vanilla, caramel, and brown sugar on top of some Belgian dried and dark fruit character. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Very good.

Thanks, Chris! Served in Jackie O’s glassware. Nose is bourbon heavy with nice dark fruits, sugary malt, caramel, and vanilla in the background. Very pungent barrel character, though quite smooth. Medium-full body.

Bomber to oversized snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a semi-opaque amberish-brown with off-white lacing. Smells solid; sweet and boozy with some cherry notes. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Great beer.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22pz bottle courtesy of my friend in Ohio. Cheers! Pours a deep red brown with an off-white head. Nose is brown sugar, boozy and some big citrus hops outside of the vanilla and booze in the barrel. Flavor is big caramel and brown sugar with citrus hops, some boozy burn, and some oaky vanilla. Finish is oaky vanilla, boozy hops, and some burn. Interesting idea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Cloudy brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The nose is a luxuriant swirl of bourbon, brown sugar, toffee and mocha. Full-bodied and chewy with soft carbonation. The flavor furnishes tons of bourbon intermingled with sweet caramel and brown sugar. The finish is all about the bourbon. I do love bourbon. Thanks goes out to darkguardian for sharing this world class rarity!
